A Quote From Fahrenheit 451Submitted by FenderStrat on Tue, 12/04/2012 - 21:25
She didn't want to know how a thing was done, but why. That can be embarrassing. You ask Why to a lot of things and you wind up very unhappy indeed, if you keep at it...Luckily, queer ones like her don't happen very often. We know how to nip most of them in the bud, early.
You can't build a house without nails and wood. If you don't want a house built, hide the nails and wood. If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry about it.
